Umm, yeah. This. is. delicious. I love it! Perfect Meatless Monday meal!
Peach and nectarine season started for some of you, so take advantage of the fruity peachy deliciousness, and make a sandwich out of it. The combination of the sweet fruit with the tartness of the goat cheese, and the sweet balsamic dressing on top…. oh my goodness! So, so, so good!
I had it 2 days in a row, and I could have it again right now. It’s so fresh and perfect for quick summer lunches or light dinners on the patio. Just serve with a big salad, and maybe a refreshing drink (homemade lemonade anyone?). Delicious!
Peaches and nectarines are usually pretty heavily sprayed, so make sure you use your money to support organic farmers! 😉
